Well, dang.

 

What did you expect them to say?  If no specific phones or listening level were even mentioned ... and even if they were...  maybe you should ask another person at the company he might have a different opinion... yes this is silly and posting the question to iBasso was even more silly.

Due to the "Volume" problem, II was forced to do an update (V1.2) everything went smooth(and under 5 min)  and now this little thing is playing ok, I will test more time and let ya know how it goes!!

Here is a great amplifier for you and it's made in UK. Neco is a great guy to deal with. The Portable V3S is the smaller version.

I´ve read a lot about the C&C BH amp. I wonder how this pair (DX50 and C&C BH amp) works with the Triplefi 10 and the momentum?? Any ideas

I've read about the Tralucent T1 to be a pretty perfect match, improving the sound quite a lot.

I already find the DX50 sound very good and I'm discovering new details in well known albums, but there's always room for improvement, isn't it? wink.gif

HI All

With very Good Amps For sure can get improvement In better Way With The SQ

Please try The Tralucent T1 amp , it is One OF The best Synergy With DX 50

IMO

Live music, at least much of what I have heard and that is many different types of music and venues, often never has the detail that you get with a good speaker system or headphone system but to compensate for the lack of everything else in real live music, we get hyper details and separation to make up for this. IMO. 

That the DX50 does so very well with an amp goes to show how well the dac section is implemented. I have the AK100 that bypasses the 22 ohm resistors on the output, which for me made the sound of the AK100 a no go but removal easily brought it up a notch or two, and enjoy the sound and while different, I do not find the DX50 any less a dap to the modified AK100 and this at about 1/3 the cost. Build quality as I have mentioned is great on both. I have torn down both units and internally the AK100 has nothing over the DX50. 

We are getting so many good daps now. A dry spell for quite some time, IMO, with the last good dap being the iRiver h120/140 and rockboxed but that has all changed. I see that the 120 and 140 that could go for 250 and more is now around 100 to 150 dollars. Good stuff coming down the pike. 

I am agree With you Jamato8
DX 50 is very Good DAP For The price

sorry guys if this has been already discussed but can you get a car charger for the DX50?  Mine ran out on me on the road and what a huge letdown it was to have to pull out the iphone 5 and listen to that crappy sounding player.  

 

I am completely happy with my DX50 purchase.  I've mostly only listened to it plugged into my vehicles where I have spent a lot of time listening to my various ipods and wow this player is so much better.  

post #4511 of 15831

So I ordered the BH2, pretty pumped. Gonna really be listening to my Clip+ with me W4R's so I can make a good comparision

It's micro-usb. They're are a million devices that use it, every gas station will have a charger that works for it...

Sennheiser Momentum
Sennheiser HD595
Sennheiser IE80

Any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.

 

HD595, The short answer: Yes, the HD595 pairs well.

 

HD595, The long answer: The HD595 is my workhorse headphone getting the majority of my listening time with the DX50 due to the conflicts of my active interactive lifestyle. I wear this combo to bed. The reason I love the HD595s so much is because they are one of the best low volume HPs around extending both directions with believable sub bass at the lowest of volumes. While the DX50 cannot drive my NT6 Pros or my LCDs effectively at low volumes causing the sound to fall apart, the HD595 pairs well with extraordinary detail and space between instruments at the lowest of volumes. At higher volumes though, the HD595 cannot keep up with my NT6 Pros or my LCDs in terms of slam, but hold their own recreating the most delicate of details for a rich, full spectrum sound. 

 

When I add my BH2 amp to the mix, the NT6 and LCD scale nicely, but it doesn't add much for the HD595. The HD595 seems to work the best straight from the headphone out which I consider good news as it simplifies my setup.

I have two folders on my DX50 which are listed as "LOST.DIR" one of these is on the internal storage of my DX50 and the other is on my 64Gb Sandisk Micro SD card.

 

I assume that these are more than likely files that have been deleted at some point.....however I cannot get rid of them.....I have tried deleting them but they just keep re-appearing. Can anybody advise as to what they actually are and if they are deleted albums or files...how I can get rid of them??
